usb c portable switch dock, s8/note8 dex dock and pc/mac dock £21.99 Sold by TUTUO and Fulfilled by Amazon.

Found 24th Jan
Bought this as I wanted a portable dock for my switch and wanted to give dex a try as well. Also I'll be using it with my pc so I can plug in my rift with a single cable freeing up an extra usb 3 port. I've tested it on all three and it works perfectly (using the nintendo official charger with the switch and s8) For £22 this seems a total bargain compared witht he £70 official dock which isn't very good if you want to take it with you and this has the added benifit of working with phones and computers

Got something similar to this for £15 off eBay.
Doesn't seem to work with S.Dex for me. But does work for the switch.

nice, I mainly want it for the switch and pc but the dex is an added bonus. did you try using your samsung charger or the nintendo charger when trying dex? working right away with this dock. I went with amazon as I didn't really trust the device and know it would be easy to send back if it didnt work
What's the quality like? I've heard these USB-C things start of great, but they supply the wrong power so after a year your device becomes damaged.

seems well made, I would assume if it was supplying the wrong power then the switch wouldn't work with it. The switch works with very few docks and requires very specific chargers (for dock mode) so for now I'd suggest only using the official nintendo charger with any dock
A couple of reviews stating these rendered their switches unusable. Just be careful with these type of products.

I did see those, none mention what charger they used and I would guess that was the real problem. Only one said it broke the console the other 2 just caused the switch to go into sleep mode which can happen with insufficient power. At least that's what I hope is the cause, all the other reviewers seem happy
I would never use any unofficial dock with my Switch, there are too many reports of fried consoles.

Technically you do need a power cable because it wouldn't work without the dock already plugged in. I see what you are saying though.

I am using my Switch in handheld mode more and more so somthing like this, with a permenant case on seems like a good bet for making it last longer. May I ask what case you use? I am looking at the Mumba £20 ones. A good chunk of money, but from the review I have seen, definitely worth it.

I have one of these - it works fine - there are cheaper ones but a number of reviews said they didn't work on Switches, which is why I bought it. It does need an external power supply - I have a generic power adapter and a USB C cable, same one for my OnePlus. I can't see how it could damage the Switch, it's not doing anything other then boosting the video output.
Care required when using unofficial docks. Even the well known Nyko brand have produced docks which have been widely reported to fry Nintendo Switches.
Proceed with EXTREME caution with any non-branded docks.
Remember in addition to killing your Switch you will also lose all your save game data should the worst happen. It's just not worth putting your trust in these 3rd party docks in my opinion.

You could always buy an external battery. I use one with the cable from the pro controller and it works well.

Read up on USB-C third party cables causing fried devices - not just Switch, but lap tops, ipads etc. etc.

how is that even similar? If I want to use my switch round a friends house or on holiday in docked mode I can use the dock in this deal (which fits in my switch case) plus a power adapter. What is the point of that device anyway?

Sadly mine just says "hdmi connected" and nothing happens.

That's with both charging plugs.b

Sadly I would've paid the extra few quid for a dock for Dex as well.

But I did ask the seller if this was meant to work with Samsung as it does say on the device it's self it'll work with Samsung and switch.

They gave me £5 refund. So my portable dock cost me £10.

sounds like a bargain, dex really isn't that useful unless you really need to edit some documents or want to improve web browsing where you have a monitor/keyboard and no pc (which I can't imagine is very often) although just hdmi mirroring is useful for playing games and watching video on a tv

True. I have a laptop for work on the go. So Dex is a decent idea but compared to the new Razer phone laptop idea, Dex is a bit poo.
I own a similar device that does usb C to hdmi out for the S8. Great for screen mirroring things like taskmaster of Uktv player

At a tenner it was a bargain and a half

33127099-F9ZU7.jpgI really question the point of this.
The official dock is basically the same thing without the need of the 2foot cable and an additional stand.

The concept is laughable.

As with the OP, I'd grab the small usb C to hdmi dock just for the portability concept.

yea nice idea but anyone with an s8 probably has a decent laptop anyway. Still if someone really wants to try dex this dock makes more sense than the official £80 one and is more portable. taskmaster such a quality show.

If your Switch is in a cover, it saves taking it out each time you need to dock. Plus I guess there might be more airflow around it.

I still would go with the usb C to hdmi If I had to go through the hassle of taking the case off to use the dock.

I'd then have 2 docks over one and one of very portable.

I hope so too. It would be nice to have a "One dock suits all" appliance.
